Speakers include:
MC Serch, host of the VH-1 reality series The White Rapper Show and Miss Rap Supreme;
Joan Morgan, author of When Chickenheads Come Home to Roost: My Life as a Hip-Hop Feminist;
Martha Diaz, community organizer, media producer, researcher, archivist, and a social entrepreneur;
Rev. Conrad Tillard, Sr. Pastor of Nazarene Congregational Church; and Bakari Kitwana, journalist, activist and political analyst.

Free, reservations required. For reservations and information please call 917.492.3395.
